From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tampico was a 1944 drama/war film directed by Lothar Mendes and released by 20th Century Fox. It starred Edward G. Robinson, Lynn Bari, Victor McLaglen, Marc Lawrence, and Mona Maris.[1][2]


Robinson plays the role of the captain of an oil tanker during World War II, Captain Bart Manson, who rescues Katherine Hall (Bari) when her ship is sunk by a German U-boat. The couple marry, but Manson's ship is subsequently sunk as well. Hall becomes a prime suspect for involvement as she was carrying no identification when rescued. However Manson later discovers that his First Mate Fred Adamson (McLaglen) is in fact a German agent responsible for the sinking, and Hall is cleared of any culpability.[3]
